- The most beautiful 4 door hands down. Quite inside and nice control layout.
- Drinks gas at alarming rate- 11.7 MPG! Unreliable from day one. Rough ride with SP1 pkg.
To be fair, this car deserves a star for its looks alone. As I did, many people will buy it because it looks great, like a superstar in an Armani suit. However, good looks are only skin deep. Besides being a quite and smooth higway cruiser with lots of power and good brakes... everything else about this car is annoying. On my 8th or 9th day of ownership, the A/C controls went out on the blink, spewing hot air on a hot day. The dealer fixed the car in less than 3 hours- the time it took to drive home the loaner and come back after some shopping. A week later the engine light came on. It was towed away because after I parked it, it wouldn't start. Dealer dropped off a loaner and 2 days later I had my car back. The dealer also noted adding 2 extra quarts of oil in 2000 miles. Of course the gas mileage has not gotten any better after 6 months time now. I only get 11-12 mpg! This is a total let down as the EPA ratings were 15/19 so I don't even get close to that. Also along the way, the key fob was replaced. The passenger door lock was repaired. The navigation system was replaced and the ABS brake sensors were replaced. When it comes to safety, that's unacceptable. Mercedes you lost a new customer.
